The STEELMAN 42016 Universal Hook and Cotter Pin Puller is the ideal tool to use when you need precision prying and hooking capacity. This hook makes the removal of cotter pins both safer and easier as its sharp point easily gets into the open end of the pin for a secure grip and the 90 degree angle gives you additional leverage to pull it free. No more will you have to deal with slipping pliers or screwdrivers that more often than not leave the cotter pin mangled and unusable. The tool is also great for removing hoses and O-rings as well whether on autos, fifth wheels, or trailers. The comfortable handle is made of highly visible, heavy duty red plastic and the steel hook is zinc-plated for increased corrosion resistance.
